Cilantro Lemon Rice Recipe

DSC_0262Main

This is a great side dish for seafood and chicken dishes. Steamed rice with lemon juice and cilantro, it’s so refreshing and very simple to make! A rice cooker would be useful for this but you can always use a large sauce pan and cook the rice on the stove top. For this dish, I think basmati is the best rice to use for; it doesn’t get sticky. But if you don’t have basmati, jasmine or any long grain rice is fine too.  
Serves: 8
 
Ingredients:
2 Tbsp. butter
2 cups of uncooked basmati/jasmine rice
3 cups water
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro
Salt to taste
